This week we have bought many new koi into the shop , from our quarantine centers . Just an example , these Torazo jumbo tosai ( one year ) , these have been measured between 33-40cm !!! Most are on the website , and more will be added , over the next few days !
Yesterday , we brought in around 30 jumbo tosai from Sekiguchi , they are all now photographed and on the website in the Jumbo tosai section . We are just in the process of starting to empty the sold pond in the shop , and we will then bring in more nisai !
As normal we will be open on the Saturday and Monday this bank holiday weekend . Opening at 09-30 -3pm on both days , and we are closed on Sunday . If we are busy , we will stay open , or if your running late , please call and we will wait for you .
